Prediction: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Leeds United

Prediction: Match to end in 2-2 draw

Best Odds: 11/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this week. The match at Molineux Stadium is slated to kick off at 8pm UK time on Friday and promises to be a cracking game of football.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers are having a very disappointing season and are unlikely to finish in the European places in the Premier League table. In fact, there is a very distinct possibility that Wolves may not even end up in the top half.

Nuno’s side are as low as 12th in the Premier League table at the moment with 30 points from 23 matches. The Wanderers will head into the game against Leeds on the back of a 2-1 victory over Southampton away from home at St. Mary’s Stadium which followed a 2-0 defeat to the same opposition at Molineux Stadium in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Team News:

Adama Traore is likely to start for Wolves against Leeds. Fabio Silva could also be included in the starting lineup.

Leeds United

Leeds United have been a superb team to watch. Marcelo Bielsa’s side are scoring goals and conceding them, just as they did against Arsenal this past weekend. The Whites were 4-0 down after 47 minutes, but they did not give up and ended up finding the back of the net twice thereafter.

The West Yorkshire club, who won automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of last season, are 11th in the Premier League table at the moment with 32 points from 23 games. Leeds are not going to get relegated, and there is a very good chance that they could finish in the European places in the league table.

Team News:

Kalvin Phillips did not play against Arsenal due to a calf injury, and the England international could miss the match against Wolves as well.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds United have scored 40 goals in 23 Premier League games this season.
  • Wolves have scored 25 goals in 24 Premier League games this season.
  • Leeds United have conceded 42 goals in 23 Premier League matches this campaign.
  • Wolves have conceded 32 goals in 24 Premier League matches this campaign.
  • Leeds lost 1-0 to Wolves at Elland Road in the Premier League in October 2020.

Conclusion

Wolves may not be at their best this season, but the Wanderers remain a very good side who can beat any team on their day. Leeds have been very inconsistent this season, but they are guaranteed to make things interesting and entertaining. This game could end up in a high scoring draw.
